Ex-Notre Dame running back Greg Bryant is dead at age 21. He had been in critical condition since early Saturday, when he was shot on I-95 in West Palm Beach, Florida, near Bryant’s hometown of Delray Beach.
Notre Dame’s head coach Brian Kelly released the following statement after the news of Bryant’s passing.
“This is such a sad and tragic situation. My thoughts and prayers, as well as those of everyone associated with the University of Notre Dame and its football program, are with Greg’s family at this incredibly difficult time.”
News broke Sunday afternoon that Bryant was brain dead as a result of the shooting that took place in the early-morning hours of Saturday. His family confirmed that Bryant passed away Sunday afternoon as well, ultimately succumbing to multiple gunshot wounds.
